Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
On June 25, 2020, Match Group, Inc. (“Match”) held a special meeting of stockholders (the “Match Special Meeting”) to:
1.consider and vote on a proposal to adopt the Transaction Agreement, dated as of December 19, 2019 and amended as of April 28, 2020 and June 22, 2020 (as so amended, the “Transaction Agreement”), by and among IAC/InterActiveCorp (“IAC”), IAC Holdings, Inc., Valentine Merger Sub LLC and Match (the “Transaction Proposal”);
2.consider and vote on an advisory (non-binding) proposal to, following the separation of the businesses of Match from the remaining businesses of IAC pursuant to the Transaction Agreement (the “Separation”), classify the board of directors of IAC, which will be renamed “Match Group, Inc.” (“New Match”) and to allow New Match stockholders to vote on the election of the directors on a staggered three-year basis, rather than on an annual basis (the “New Match Board Classification Advisory Vote Proposal”);
3.consider and vote on an advisory (non-binding) proposal to, following the Separation, prohibit action by written consent of stockholders of New Match in lieu of a stockholder meeting, subject to any rights of holders of preferred stock (the “Prohibition of Stockholder Written Consent Advisory Vote Proposal”); and
4.approve one or more adjournments or postponements of the Match Special Meeting if necessary or appropriate, including to solicit additional proxies if there are not sufficient votes at the time of the Match Special Meeting to adopt the Transaction Proposal (the “Match Adjournment Proposal”).
There were 74,223,779 shares of Match common stock (entitled to one vote per share) and 209,919,402 shares of Match Class B common stock (entitled to ten votes per share) outstanding and entitled to vote on the record date for the Match Special Meeting.
Pursuant to the terms of the Transaction Agreement, adoption of the Transaction Proposal, which was a condition to the completion of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement, required both (i) the affirmative vote of holders of at least a majority of the aggregate voting power of all outstanding shares of Match capital stock entitled to vote on the proposal, voting together as a single class, and (ii) the affirmative vote of holders of at least a majority of the aggregate voting power of all outstanding shares of Match capital stock entitled to vote on the proposal (other than any shares of Match capital stock owned, directly or indirectly, by IAC and its subsidiaries, the members of the IAC board of directors, any person that IAC has determined to be an “officer” of IAC within the meaning of Rule 16a-1(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the members of the Match board of directors, any person that Match has determined to be an “officer” of Match within the meaning of Rule 16a-1(f) of the Exchange Act, and the immediate family members of any of the foregoing), voting together as a single class (the “Disinterested Stockholders”).



At the Match Special Meeting, shares of Match capital stock constituting a quorum to conduct business were present in person or by proxy, and each of the proposals was approved by the requisite voting power of holders of Match capital stock.
The results for each matter voted on were as follows:
1.The Transaction Proposal:
Number of Votes FOR
Number of Votes AGAINST
Number of Votes ABSTAINED
2,159,609,575 32,666 19,474
2.The New Match Board Classification Advisory Vote Proposal:
Number of Votes FOR
Number of Votes AGAINST
Number of Votes ABSTAINED
2,131,236,967 28,379,341 45,407
3.The Prohibition of Stockholder Written Consent Advisory Vote Proposal:
Number of Votes FOR
Number of Votes AGAINST
Number of Votes ABSTAINED
2,135,713,313 23,872,569 75,833
As of the record date of the Match Special Meeting, the Disinterested Stockholders held 55,211,534 shares of Match common stock. The Transaction Proposal was approved by Disinterested Stockholders holding 41,594,128 shares of Match common stock, which represents approximately 75% of the voting power of Match common stock held by the Disinterested Stockholders.
A vote on the Match Adjournment Proposal was not necessary or appropriate because there were sufficient votes at the time of the Match Special Meeting to approve the Transaction Proposal. No other business properly came before the Match Special Meeting.

$3.00 in cash (a “Cash Election”); or
